Our Lady of Malibu Church hosted the 51st annual Keep Christ in Christmas (KCIC) awards ceremony on Jan. 6. School-aged Malibu children from pre-K through eighth grade were awarded for their writing and artwork submissions to the annual contest, which has been a long-standing tradition in the community. 

Students from local churches, including Our Lady of Malibu, Malibu United Methodist Church, Pepperdine Church of Christ, Malibu Presbyterian and Calvary Christian, submitted artwork, banners, essays, poetry, prose and short stories. More than 100 students were awarded for their entries, which were based on the theme of “Journey to the Manger.” 

This year’s event was hosted by new president and longtime OLM parishioner, Mary Motley.
